Maybe you spent your Saturday night wondering how to pay your bills. Not the Obama’s and their friends in the media. They held another black tie affair, and yucked things up. Jimmy Kimmel tried to play it safe, but ended up getting a high-five from President Obama; maybe because he stooped to this.
He did give extra attention to a few targets, though, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and trailing Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich received the bulk of Kimmel’s cutting remarks. The audience seemed most responsive to his take-down of Christie, which focused on cracks about the governor’s weight.
“You might be misunderstanding the New Jersey state slogan,” said Kimmel. “It’s not the ‘Olive’ Garden State.”
Gingrich’s refusal to drop out of the presidential campaign, and his apparent resemblance to the gay lovechild of the Michelin Man and Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, took the heaviest hit among Republican targets — not that Kimmel didn’t have words for presumed presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
“We would absolutely elect a Mormon president,” he said of the hopeful’s critics, “just not Mitt Romney.”
This is what passes for humor these days? It was awful, the whole thing. I’m sorry I wasted my time.
Update: I missed the first minute or two of the show. Looks like I missed out on the classy toilet flush.
